Customer Reviews

Tony, I just wanted to say hi and thank you again for the great photo tour in and around Rome. My Photography is going to be shown exclusively at the Jose Eber Salon in the Four Seasons Resort Aviara. I am also going to get paid rent for showing them and trying to sell them. I couldn't have done this without your guidance. If your schedule allows and you can make it down south, Alan and I would love to see you and I would love to show off my work that you helped me see and capture.

Eugenio: I would like to thank you for your hospitality and words of wisdom on food preparation during our stay in Rome last week. You have inspired us and we are very excited about making our own pizzas with authentic ingredients. I was able to find the 00 flour - made by "Caputo" and imported from Italy. We planted our tomatoes in the garden and we are looking forward to making great pizzas. We don't use the metric system but I was able to go to the store and by a conversion measuring device so we can experiment with the various ingredients.

We really enjoyed learning the techniques - the lunch and the wine were very good!! - Thank you again!!
